Very good first post Donald. Sharp on the eye and very well composed. With a prey in his toes, that's a bonus for the photographer. The background is perfect and you wrote an interesting and informative note.
Welcome to TN!
I love the soft looking feathers on him, also the needles in the foreground and top right. An excellent shot, crisp and clear! Welcome to TN...I look forward to seeing more of your work.
Very good first post Donald.
I like the colours and pose of this beautilful bird.
It's a bit soft.
Welcome to TN.

Welcome to TN, Donald. Very attractive first post. The overall impression is very good, with very well captured eyes, great soft colors, and holding a prey, which is really good. Efficient framing (pine needles are a nice addition). Just a nit... filtering seems a bit high (halos in the BG). Anyway, a very good illustration of these fascinating night birds.

And nice light it certainly is, Donald. This is a stunning shot and I am so very jealous...I would love to have one like this in my files. Looks like it let you get really close too. Lucky you!!!!

A belated welcome to TN, Donald. Your first post sets a nice standard. The subject is interesting as is your note. Great action and eye contact captured. Also a critter which I have not seen before. Very well done. With such a quality post I can't wait to see more of your contributions.

Welcome to TN Donald.
A very beautiful composition to start with. This time the general softness of the pic with that penetrant eyes gives a nice atmosphere. This guy seems to be posing for you.
Hope to see more photos and critiques soon!
Thanks for sharing.
An excellent first performance, Donald.
I do not want to repeat what the others wrote.
I shall thus content with wishing you the most cordial welcome on TN.
In the pleasure to admire your next sendings and to read your notes and critics.
Thank you for sharing.

Cute little critter, although his prey probably wouldn't agree ;o))
Focus spot on where it should be, hypnotic eyes. My preference would be for more DOF, but with the light conditions this is not as easy as it sounds in this case, I know ;-))
